Byron Nelson's newest student-athlete signees

Byron Nelson High School hosted its final signing day festivities for the 2016-17 academic year on Wednesday, April 19, honoring its 15 newest student-athletes to sign letters of intent to play collegiate sports.

Students from baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, softball, swimming, and track and field were recognized at the event, which added to the 14 student-athletes who signed letters of intent earlier in the school year. Byron Nelson’s 29 signees for the year and Northwest’s 30 signees for the year give Northwest ISD a total of 59 student-athletes who have signed letters of intent to play collegiate sports.

From the baseball team, four students signed to play in college. Kevin Banks signed with Oklahoma Panhandle State University (in Goodwell), Jacob Frisbie signed with Texas Lutheran University (in Seguin), Colby Maddox signed with Oklahoma Christian University (in Edmond) and Ricky Rivera signed with Ranger College (in Ranger). The baseball team’s four signings tied with football for the most of today’s signing day.

The boys basketball team was represented by Nils Huizenga, who will play for the University of Texas at Arlington going forward.

From the cross country and track teams, Ryan Teuscher signed with the University of Oklahoma. Ryan is currently competing in the postseason for the track and field team.

Football’s four signees will be off to three locations. Zach Collins signed with Central Methodist University (in Fayette, Missouri) and Bryson Davis signed with Lyon College (in Batesville, Arkansas), while Mohammad Osman and Jahshua Stokes signed with Doane University (in Crete, Nebraska).

Golf was represented by two signees: Brandon LaRosa with William Jessup University (in Rocklin, California) and Matt Perez with the University of Rochester (in New York).

The softball team, which is still currently playing its regular season, was represented by two student-athlete signees. Karly Girod signed with the University of Dallas, and Savannah McCoy signed with Schreiner University (in Kerrville).

Finally, from the swimming team, Madeline Wilson, who holds four school records, will compete for Truman State University (in Kirksville, Missouri) after signing her letter of intent.
